My View on the above Article

Is it Chaos Cinema or simply a case of filmmakers not knowing what they are doing?

From my personal experience it is usually the latter. Let me explain: In Hollywood, Actors sell tickets... in Asia, Action sells tickets.

How many times does it happen in a Hollywood movie that action sequences are rehearsed for weeks on end and when the action is to be filmed on set they completely change the action at the last minute.

My name is Philippe Deseck and I am a Stunt Actor/ Assistant Stunt Coordinator and would like to share the passion I have for Action Movies and everything related to the Movie Industry. 

Since a very young age I have had a love for movies, particularly action movies from Hong Kong.
